Polling the troops about their politics is a bad idea

When Congressman Steve Cohen, D-Tennessee, suggested on CNN this week that the National Guard troops providing security for today’s inauguration might pose an “insider” threat, it was too much even for CNN news anchor Jim Sciutto. “The Guard is 90 some odd percent, I believe, male,” Cohen asserted. “Only about 20% of white males voted for Biden. You have got to figure that the Guard, which is predominantly more conservative — and I see that on my social media, and we know it — there are probably...

LAUSD students discuss political climate as Biden becomes president

Seeing a new administration take over the White House brings with it a feeling of excitement for Emely Cortez. At the same time, she struggles to remain hopeful that President Joe Biden will be able to get as much accomplished as she would like, given how fractured the country is. “In the last four years, when I’ve actually gotten into politics and I started paying attention, I’ve only seen a lot of bad stuff,” said Cortez, an 11th grader at Cesar E.

Lakers hope to improve rim protection with stiff test against Bucks

When you’re going to be out of town for two weeks, the packing list gets long. The Lakers brought four variations of their uniforms, packed into bag after bag in an enormous trailer. But what might help them most is to bring along their defense, beginning with Thursday’s game against the best scoring team in the league. The Lakers are poised for another compelling matchup with the Milwaukee Bucks (9-5), a team that has started another season with astronomic offensive numbers (a 117.7 offensive r...

Disney World to add Joe Biden animatronic to controversial Hall of Presidents

Vice President Harris escorted to inauguration by Capitol Police officer hailed as hero

The Capitol Police officer’s courageous actions were recognized again on Wednesday when he escorted Kamala Harris to the inauguration ceremony.

On Biden’s day, U.S. capital swiftly pivots to life after Trump

WASHINGTON — Quite suddenly, if only for a freeze-frame moment, everything old was new again, starting when Joe Biden stepped outside into his day and Donald Trump vanished inside Air Force One for his flight to private life in Florida. Democratic and Republican leaders worshipped together at church, just one tradition dusted off. The centuries-old rituals of a peaceful transfer of power unfolded from the high platform of the flag-bedecked Capitol, still recovering from insurrection. A law e...

Joe Biden takes the helm of our divided nation

After the most divisive post-election period in modern history, the nation will today inaugurate Joe Biden as its 46th president. We needn’t fully recount the election challenges that former President Trump attempted since he lost on Nov. 3, but his fraud allegations and refusal to conform to long-held transition customs has frayed the social fabric and undermined trust in our institutions. Trump’s behavior has led to today’s inaugural backdrop: More than three-quarters of Republicans tell polls...

Small businesses and women especially need America to reopen

During the height of the pandemic, local and state leaders consistently argued that business operations needed to be restricted, until the U.S. had a viable vaccine. Well, that day has arrived. More than 14 million injections have been given—averaging roughly 775,000 doses administered daily in the last week. As governments work to distribute the vaccine, it’s time to reopen. Even Gov. Andrew Cuomo of New York —one of the country’s most ardent supporters of strict lockdowns—concurs. The governor...

Stand up to the mob, reject feel-good ‘solutions’: John Stossel

Joe Biden says he’ll “advance racial equity” by making “bold investments” in “affordable housing,” aiding “businesses owned by Black and Brown people,” establishing an “Equity Commission,” etc. Gosh, that’ll do it. Others demand reparations for slavery, more social programs and defunding the police. Yet, economist Thomas Sowell says, “I haven’t been able to find a single country in the world where policies advocated for Blacks in the United States lifted any people out of poverty.” Sowell’s a Bl...
